Emotionally charged drama
What is the movie about?
Sapne Vs Everyone is about two dreamers with different mindsets and how they find themselves in the process of achieving their dreams. The emotional struggles they face and how they both achieve their goals form the core of the story.
Ambrish Verma plays more of a lead role; his screen presence and ease with his body language are excellent and help hook the viewer. He brings the necessary style and body language in just the right doses.
Paramvir Singh Cheema portrays the honest and somewhat naive nuances well, doing full justice to the role. That’s why the climax at the end works so effectively. The subtle emotions he conveys throughout the show add to his emotional depth, which is crucial, and he delivers on this front.
Ambrish and Paramvir are like the two eyes of ‘Sapne Vs Everyone’, and if one of them fails to deliver or overacts, the show won’t work. Here, the best thing is that both do full justice to their roles.
“Sapne Vs Everyone” is written and directed by Ambrish Verma, who previously acted and directed a couple of well-known web series.
Ambrish has chosen a simple but relatable story that seems direct and simple, but is very successful in generating enough emotions.
Firstly, the show is based on two lead actors, Ambrish (also the director) and Paramvir, and Ambrish manages to extract what is needed for the show.
For a show like “Sapne Vs Everyone” to succeed, the writing is extremely crucial and stands out along with the dialogue work, creating an impact every time.
It takes time for the show to establish a connection, but once the character establishment and conflicts become clear, there’s no turning back until the final episode.
What could have been done better is a sense of déjà vu, and it seems that there is more scope to go all out, but that doesn’t happen, although the director’s vision will not disappoint.
The best part is that after all that long drama, the summary of the climax comes so clearly that it will surely give you a feeling of satisfaction after watching around 6 hours of the web series.
Overall, “Sapne Vs Everyone” is a sure hit for drama fans with its excellent cast and emotional depth. Just give it time and the show will bring you to a satisfying emotional climax.
Performances of other actors
Naveen Kasturia, who plays the role of a music teacher, needs to inspire his young children in class and at the same time establish a connection with the viewer through his performance or inspiring dialogue. He does it well and his role has an underlying connection to the central story. He offers what is expected of him.
Vijayant Kohli, in the negative role of a rich and rigid goon, delivers a solid impact through his screen presence. Although his scenes seem limited, his impact cannot be overlooked.
Vaisakh Shankar plays the typical role of a shrewd businessman and plays his part. There are many other actors who play his roles very well: among them Jairoop Jeevan, Sukhwinder Chahal and Neeta Mohindra stand out.
Music and other departments?
Akaash Mukherjee composes the music for ‘Sapne Vs Everyone’ and his background score elevates the show throughout, especially in crucial scenes. Its score is at par with the standards of any highly produced OTT show. Akaash tried to twist Arjun Reddy’s popular background music in some scenes, which could have been easily avoided as it always seemed like a copy or inspiration, which is not necessary in this case. But the good thing is that it is only used in a few scenes.
The same applies to Georgy John’s photography. The show maintains a high-quality look throughout and never feels like we’re watching a low-budget web series on YouTube.
TVF deserves real credit for this.
